I read this the year I lived in Paris full-time, before moving back to New York City two days before 9/11. These two facts led to my hibernating in my house for the next year. Today, I do dine in New York restaurants, but Bourdain’s message about what goes on in restaurant kitchens behind the scenes stays with me and I “look the other way.”
